So ACS gives you the 20F, 30R lowering? Just what I'm aiming for too! ..
Are you going to 'settle' with these springs? ()
Are they enough to make you up your spring experimentation?

That has to be the last one, there are not as many spring manufacturers as wheels..

It is possible to set ACS or Eibach or H&R springs on a F10 which has the EDC ???
I've heard lot of people who say that it is not compatible

Someone has a confirmation of that ?

Can someone explain what is : DHP , IAS and PSS here ..?

Looking to improve the handling capabilities of the f10 535 ...

In stock form, it's almost like riding on a boat now ...

Ok, found the answer...

For benefit of those who needed the answer :

PSS - pilot super sports
IAS - integral active steering
DHP - dynamic handling package

Hi brothers,

Besides lowering and performance driving, does AC spring offer comfort ride?

Thanks

Yes, AC Schnitzer offers comfort ride. In fact, there is no much difference with stock suspension.

ACS Spring kit Part#

Can someone please give me the part# of the ACS spring kit for the 2013 528i X-DRIVE? I am having trouble getting a straight answer from local suspension shops and my local BMW dealer. (I can not locate the ACS Part# on their website either).

I just spoke to Anthony Hsieh at the above number. I am very impressed by his customer service. I definitely recommend them. I asked about group buy options, but he said they have to stay at MRSP per guidelines.

now that my H&R's were Installed correctly Im extremely happy with them. The height is perfect!! Took it to about 85 on a NYC highway and they were excellent. good luck with your choice bro.

As a reference, the ACS springs cost $445 in the US. I'm in Canada but it was much cheaper to order from the US.
hi jlgwu, do you remember where did you find the ACS springs for $445 in US?
